    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very little work to do after 1 pm Finish at 3 pm Fairly easy work, you aren't overworked on the day shift Nice supervisors/management

    Cons

    On your feet 8 hours a day 30-minute break given after 6 hours of work Heavy lifting sometimes required Many workers speak little or no English Night/twilight shift is a nightmare Very little chance for progression within the company

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Amazon has some extremely high standards, so for engineers it is a brilliant place to learn how to do things right. Teams are given the time to build things well, and design them properly. Mostly good work life balance. Good friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are lower than the rival companies. Managers pass down tasks to their team and dish them out. Very variable manager quality. The most important thing for career progression in Amazon is having a good manager, and these can sometimes be hard to find. Not much transparency in the company. On-call can be a constraint sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Increase transparency about what's going on in the company. Make compensation more open and trustworthy that you won't be left behind.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Freedom to think big, own projects, learn a lot (and rapidly) and work on some innovative and exciting projects. Also encourage personal development and to try new things/roles to gain experience.

    Cons

    Can be a lot of pressure and takes a while to get to grips with all the jargon, tools and processes. Hard work and with a lot of plates to spin! Fast past with a lot of change.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are generally quite self-sufficient but will need help ramping up and support dealing with pressure. Development advice, finding relevant projects and helping employees build a network is key.
